Fitness Transformations Happen to Regular People Just Like You

Today on Instagram I’m going to be posting up a Throwback Thursday of our very first member, Mike Strohl. It is the same picture you see above, and I’m just incredibly impressed by what Mike has accomplished in 7 months. I’d love to sit here and take credit for this transformation because of the programming and nutrition coach, but the truth is I can’t do that. This is 100% Mike’s accomplishment.

In my judgement, many people often get way too caught up in finding the “perfect” program, or the “perfect” nutrition plan to follow. I know that I am guilty of this myself. The truth is, just find commitment to a program and you’ll see results. This is why Mike’s fat loss has happened; it is his commitment and consistency to coming into Summit Strength week in and week out that made this happen. The programming is not magic. The nutrition plan is not a one size fits all master plan that you’d see on an infomercial.

I will admit, you have to have some knowledge of fitness and training to get someone to these results. That is why so many people are fleeing the big box gyms such as L.A. Fitness and Gold’s Gym in favor of local CrossFit boxes; you get a personalized service from someone that actually knows what they are doing. However, I see so many boxes claiming that their programming is the secret. It isn’t. Sorry. So many people are educated coaches nowadays. What is important is finding a gym which you enjoying going to, that has instructors that connect with you as a person first and a client second, and truly care about your results. I believe we have that here, and I believe Mike’s results are a product of him searching for those things, finding them, and then sticking to it.

So, Mike, congratulations on these fantastic results. I’m extremely proud of what you have done in our box, and I cannot wait to see where you go from here. Rise up.

Am I ready for CrossFit?

We are asked, “Am I ready for CrossFit?” multiple times every week. The knee jerk reaction is to say yes. Then I got to thinking if that’s really true, or not.
